This 1969 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia came to us brown, rusty, trim missing, and not running too well. We fixed it! Restoring Volkswagens is rewarding work. Parts are easy to come by, as a general rule. And most Volkswagen owners are very enthusiastic.
Did you notice the old root beer bottles that had been used for front turn signal lenses? The last time this vehicle was restored the owner couldn’t find replacements, so he improvised. Today, though, parts are actually easier to come by than they were 20 years ago.
